Sierra Leone mutiny trial chugs along

Judge Advocate Otto During, RSLAF
Sierra Leone Politico has been filing regular courtroom reports on the mutiny case that has been going on fitfully for months in Freetown, Sierra Leone. The latest account describes a threat by the prosecutor to withdraw from the proceedings if he was not permitted to continue with his cross-examination of one of the 13 accused. The case is being presided over by Judge Advocate Otto During, who had instructed the prosecutor to rephrase an open-ended question.
